    User account no longer accessible from login page


    On my PC, I have two User accounts, one has administrator entitlements (call it Admin) and one does not (call it NotAdmin). I cannot access the Admin account from the login page anymore but NotAdmin still works fine.


    I have done nothing new or out of the ordinary, just today, I can no longer log into Admin or switch user accounts to Admin from NotAdmin.


    Yet, Admin account still exists. For example, if I try to run (as administrator) Cmd, then Windows prompts me for Admin password and I enter it and I am correctly granted admin access. Moreover, I can see the files created in Admin account if I "dir" from command line.


    I have done so many things from these message boards including (1) secedit ... /verbose (2) add Admin to Administrators group (3) SFC scannow (4) disk health repair. Unfortunately, I cannot restore because I previously did not have restore configured. Nothing is working.


    How can I log into my Admin user account again? How can I get my Admin user account to appear as a login option on login home page? How can I switch between Admin and Not Admin accounts again?


    Thank you.

    :)

    User account no longer accessible from login page

    Windows users at login

    I cannot see all of my user accounts on the login screen on a new Windows 10 laptop. I have an account for my son and it does not appear as a user on the login screen. It is listed if I display the users with the CMD prompt. The only account I see is my
    account which is an admin. His account is a user. All the suggestions I've seen are not available on home edition.
